I have a very poor example of what I believe to be a B&N Tarantula.
Soon to be a long body Tarantula.

Note: the doner chassis is a 70 Ghia so the floor pans don't quite match up

Distinguishing traits:

Two indents in the hood a small raised area at the nose
Bump in the rear over carb/engine
Battery and spare tire well
Cardboard Tubes glassed under side rails

Looks like a Tarantula to me. These are often mistaken for an Allison Daytona short body. The hood is the give away but there are other minor differences. Very thick fiberglass like the Daytona.
I am trying to find other Tarantulas. Up to 4 so far. They seem to be rare. The other B&N bodies are more plentiful. Hopefully, pictures attached.
